IDN Play (IDNPoker) is one of the largest poker networks in Asia. Founded in 2010, it focuses on Asian markets and has gained a lot of popularity among Chinese and Indonesian players. It has been able to snag the second position in the PokerScout ranking in 2016. The network has also participated in gaming conferences and charity events in Asia. Despite its size and popularity, IDNPlay has yet to gain a foothold in the West.
IDNPoker is licensed by PAGCOR and holds a bmm RNG certificate. However, this license does not allow IDNPoker to offer stand-alone poker clients. For this reason, they only offer one table per account. This makes playing from Western countries a bit challenging.
IDNPoker is a multi-skin poker platform, which means that it features several different skins aimed at different Asian countries. Some of these include SiamPoker, 12BetPoker, and Pokerdee. Although they are all aimed at Asian markets, they all contain English language options. In addition, the rooms are fully translated into English, making it easier for non-Asian players to navigate the site.
IDNPoker’s lobby is minimalistic and does not feature waiting lists. Players can choose to play in cash games or in tournaments. In addition, IDNPoker is the only major poker network to offer API Integration. Moreover, the company’s random number generator has been certified by BMM Compliance Singapore Pte Ltd. With these features, it is a good choice for Indonesian players who are interested in playing on an international platform.
IDNPlay offers a range of kartu poker varieties, including Texas hold’em and Omaha. To play in these games, each player must make a minimum deposit of 2,000 rupiah. There is also a rupiah bonus on deposits. Depending on the stake, players can play on hundreds of tables. Another attractive factor of the platform is that it operates a 24-hour customer service.
IDNPoker uses an HTML5 client for desktop computers. Its client is easy to navigate and does not require downloading anything. On the other hand, it is not available on iOS or Android, so players have to use a different browser. Even though it is not as popular as its competitors, IDNPoker is still a great option for Asian poker players. Currently, it is headquartered in Makati, Metro Manila, Philippines.
The site’s success has been attributed to an extensive marketing campaign in Asian countries. However, the network has never promoted its services in the Western market. Until 2016, it had a near-invisibility on the Internet. A major source of its traffic comes from China. Since then, it has started to gain traction and has surpassed PokerStars as the largest online poker network in Asia.
IDNPlay is known for its two-factor security system, which includes safe payments and fighting bots. Because of its focus on the Asian market, its success in the West is still unknown. As of 2018, it has over 10K concurrent users, which makes it the third largest poker network worldwide. Furthermore, it has over 200 skins in its database.
